Hi Marilyn. It was a great way to celebrate my winter birthday. My husband doesn't share my gardening hobby, but he was a good sport and had a suprisingly nice time too. I laugh when I hear him explaining to his buddies all about the hellebores. His favorite thing was the way they used various containers to float the flower heads. Now he is on the hunt for similar containers for my gardens - go figure.... I'm trying to decide whether it is an annoying or an endearing feature that you have to get down on the ground to see the blooms LOL...

Oh it is not the containers that float, just the flowers, but what is that round fixture above the container?

It looks like a shower hear.

I think it is a decorative shepherd's hook with a hanging bird bath. Their gardens contained a lot of creative garden ornaments.

Will you be able to go back and take more pictures for us when the weather fairs up and the flowers are out?

We love pictures on this site. And that garden looks like it would really be lovely in late spring.
